Measurement of height in scoliotic patients is complicated by changes in spinal shape in both the coronal and sagittal planes. A method is described by which these changes can be measured and compared with the shape of the normal spine, using an automated stereophotogrammetric technique (ISIS). The resultant height change may be of use in the prediction of respiratory function.
